YMMV: SaGa

The comic book series

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • Marko's father asks Alana why she has risked so much to be with Marko. She replies "Because your son is so goddamn beautiful." He chuckles that looks don't last, and then she really makes you want to get the tissues when she says "I wasn't talking about his looks".
    • Lying cat responds not only to outright lies, but also people's misconceptions about themselves.
      Slave Girl/Sophie: My name is Sophie. I'm six years old. I can stand on one leg for a long time. I'm all dirty inside because of things I did with...
      Lying Cat: LYING.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Lying Cat.
  • It Will Never Catch On: The author himself joked that, due to how non-main stream the comic is ("an original fantasy book with no superheroes, two non-white leads and an opening chapter featuring graphic robot sex"), he thought the book would be cancelled by issue 3.
  • Squick: The series isn't afraid to engage in this from time to time.
    • The giant that Marko and Klara encounter in issue 7 and 8 has a pair of gigantic, prominent, and hairy testicles. This is not figurative. They are literal huge dangling monster balls that take up maybe twenty percent of a splash-page. Vaughan's script for his first appearance has been released, showing that Vaughan actually apologized to Staples for making her draw it.
    • The Will's preferred means of attack seems to be bisecting people. The Lying Cat has been shown eating the skin off a victim's face.
  • Tearjerker:
    • Barr's sacrifice in issue 11.
    • The Brand's visit to The Will in the hospital in issue 18; it's revealed that they're siblings, and that they had been estranged for years.
  • Ugly Cute: The Lying Cat.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: If the series is known for anything, it's for the setting being truly weird, even by Space Opera standards. For example, the first issue features two television-headed robots, nude, doing it doggy-style. There is, at the very least, alcohol involved.
